    Right, that's what I meant. Thank you for your time.

    Depends on what you'd swap them for, but if you're talking about just changing the order, I think things would be mostly the same.

    Thanks Doc!
    So if you were to swap the recommended exercises for supplemental and accessory pushes (have to customize the template with the write-in for that), you wouldn't expect any real difference in outcomes, versus running it as is?

    I don't think it makes any real difference with respect to managing fatigue and subsequent outcomes.

    If you do two horizontal pressing movements in a row, you'd likely have reduced performance on the 2nd horizontal movement and handle less weight. If you did it on a separate day, you'd lift more weight. The overall fatigue would be similar with likely no difference in adaptations (lifting slightly more weight in a different context doesn't make you stronger necessarily).

    We also don't really see an increase in strength or hypertrophy with more frequency until volume gets very high, but even this isn't rock-solid.

  • Inquiry about programming choice/philosphy on The Bridge for pressing

    Hello,
    Interested in why The Bridge sets up the lift order the way it does for pressing.
    Overhead Press and Bench Press are recommended as the main vertical and horizontal pushes, respectively. No surprise there. And then the supplemental pushes are both default recommended as horizontal pushing movements, while the accessory pushes are both default recommended as vertical pushing movements.
    What caught my eye is that when the main vertical push is done, the accessory vertical pushing movement is completed directly after, while the supplemental horizontal pushing movement is done on a separate day than the main horizontal movement.
    From a fatigue management perspective, I would have guessed it would be better to have the other way it around (switch the places of the secondary vertical and horizontal pushing movements).
    Really curious about this. Thank you!
Working...
